For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:17 (KJV)
Jesus Christ is greater than all the prophets that God sent to lead His people. The Israelites held Moses in high esteem for his courage in confronting Pharaoh of Egypt and let them out of the land of bondage. Even when Jesus came on the scene some failed to recognize Him and still held on to Moses and his laws. One thing they forgot was that the law never gave people the liberty they needed to worship and serve God. It was rigid and never convicted people to repent; it delighted in instant justice. God saw that the law was not having greater impact on His children so He sent grace and truth through Jesus Christ. With grace and truth people are given the freedom to make their choices based on the truth of God’s Word; they are free to choose to serve God or reject Him. Those who choose to accept Jesus and serve Him will have eternal life to enter heaven but those who reject Him will suffer the consequences in Hell. Dear beloved, Jesus Christ is greater than all and always has the best for us, therefore, take advantage of grace and truth and live a better and fulfilled life for Jesus. Hallelujah! Be An Overcomer!
Dear Lord, You know my condition. I am weary and in need of renewal. I am so glad that You have invited me to come to You for rest. So I come to You even now, Jesus. I know that You are gentle and humble in heart and will give me rest for my soul. I put my soul into Your capable hands. Help me and heal me. Today I rejoice in this wonderful relationship I have with you. Thank You for declaring me Your friend. Let me remember not only the good things in life, but also the bad. The good helps me to rejoice, the bad helps me avoid making the same mistakes again. Lord, let me learn from my mistakes. I surrender my life to You. Use me, live through me. Guide me and help me fulfill Your purpose for my life. Help me, by your Spirit, to live each day in light of Lord. May my action in every part of life reflect my Lord Jesus.
